I don't even think its brute forced. My computing teacher showed us how to get the keys by looking through some of the requests that got sent to the server when you successfully enter the captcha.

You'll all be interested to know that, yet again, I didn't win in the lottery.

If there are no slots, please put me in reserve, I will wait for the place. Will add signature when accepted. Thanks!

1. You need to understand the definition "full".
2. You seem to just be a bounty hunter based on your post history.
3. You haven't earnt a single merit so far...
4. You posted a legacy address instead of segwit.

I don't think people are getting the point. I'd suggest locking this and making a self mod one.

@stupid user, yes other members can post links but there is almost no value in a newbie account so it's just a throwaway account. I'm not going to spread round a virus am I with a reputation to uphold?

Since the new news, there might be some fluctuations now if people are considering if there are any more issues but we seem quite stable so maybe not...
5  Other / Meta / Re: Should new members be allowed to post URLs? on: September 21, 2018, 12:22:12 PM
This will probably be the new trends following sig restrictions.
Report > "Referal spam" > problem solved Cheesy

He's posted the same thing four times though... So it's just giving him an excuse to post it again.

I don't think we solved the problem...

He did remind me to pm sidehack though so every cloud...

It's the thread where our replies to his spam (along with his spam) got deleted @Jet Cash if you remember?

But it does seem like a good idea to disallow newbies to post links (especially when you can accidentally click them when using a trackpad or touchscreen computer). They can easily use something like www[dot]bitcointalk[dot]org or www . bitcointalk . org if they have something useful to share but otherwise it's probably best to disable links (to cut down on phishing attempts and ref link stuff).

I think, with the current crypto situation, mining enthusiasts have begun to decrease because the income generated from mining is decreasing but costs are increasing because of the higher maintenance costs

Not to mention how individual miners are doing horribly at the moment.
18THs is about the maximum as far as I can tell and that doesn't give you much of a share. (less than 0.001BTC/day).

There are things like this but I don't know how true that information/seller actually is and it doesn't give noise consumption or anything but  I bet it's a lot!

is it possible to use chipmixer on the testnet blockchain ?

best regards moejoejay

No, I don't think it is.
Just use small chip sizes if you want to send a test transaction.

Airlines are so 20th century, get with the times dude Grin.

Often valuations by stock traders aren't based on how the company is doing now it's based on future potential, a greater amount of investment means a bigger farm and more assets (and a lot of money is made from legal drug sales).

Why are agnostics and seculars put in the same place.

Agnostics are much more tolerable Grin (in seriousness, they should be split though as they are quite a bit different) - atheists are people who belive there isn't a God definitely, agnostics are less biggotry.

This round, the winner with the lowest number of tickets is #2 with 214 tickets.
#1 won 0.40743557 BTC with 722 tickets.

Urgh, I know. This keeps making me feel tempted to go ahead and buy 3000 tickets with my remaining rewards points, stored up since forever. I mean, if a guy can win it with 2 tickets several rounds ago and we keep seeing below 1000 tickets winning the big prizes, I stand a chance right?

But every time I visit the lottery page and see my chance of winning, and I try to multiply by 3000 or so, it's not even 0.1%, so I change my mind haha.

Goes back to grinding rewards points.

I have ~2000 tickets this round...
That's 0.016% win chance.
You'd have to spend about 3mbtc in order to get to 1% by the end of each round...
12  Other / Meta / Re: It's become little bit harder to report ANN bumping bot from patrol. on: September 19, 2018, 09:22:06 PM
I'd have though this would be a good thing to have more posts that you can penalise, I don't think there's a way around this, no... Just start reporting the other posts where spam is evident also.
13  Other / Meta / Re: A Copper membership needs signature reductions on: September 19, 2018, 05:56:46 PM
This feels a lot like we're trying to scam newbies. Only the new scammers are the ones we once trusted...

Pay $15 dollars and get a good signature, then wake up tomorrow and see that it's gone! Unless we let them all have a refund, this isn't going to work well at all!
14  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Best way to make multisig wallets on: September 19, 2018, 05:44:49 PM
I wanted to ask, if I send coins to a multisig address, is it possible to work out the addresses that made that multisig address before I sign a transaction?

Security should be high since the device/disk won't touch the internet

As long as there isn't an internet connection, you are pretty secured. Regardless of the OS.
Even windows XP should keep you secured then.

Maybe it's time to test out my offline hard disk cloner and buy a cheap $10 used 512GB hdd (obviously saving stuff to multiple places), switching the hard drive, reinstalling windows completely on the new disk, giving it a standalone electrum and producing my seeds on a flash stick (writing down the seeds). Moving the USB data to another usb stick and completely fill the first stick with random data, then move the second using 7zip and compress encrypt it with a strong password (maybe one of the seeds if I'm using 14 of 15 multisig) back to the original hard drive and just smash the second with a hammer...
15  Other / Meta / Re: Newbies can't make posts? on: September 19, 2018, 05:32:47 PM
I think it is an experiment to see what the forum is like without newbies. Smiley

Has it improved things?

We should just keep heros and legendaries, see what happens Smiley (although then it'll just be moderators left after that if theymos wants to add any more restrictions).
16  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Best way to make multisig wallets on: September 19, 2018, 05:17:38 PM
My issue is, I'm not sure if there's an edition of live windows that can be used (linux seems too dependent on its dependencies to be useful to me - too much reliance on running random scripts from the internet).

Why do you think that linux requires to run 'random scripts from the internet' ?
You don't have to run any scripts at all. And obviously also shouldn't without inspecting the code first.

For security reasons, i would discourage you from choosing windows over linux.
I don't have the time to read the source code for bitcoin core, libssl-dev and the other requirements needed
Security should be high since the device/disk won't touch the internet, people who moan at windows not being secure is generally because they like how they can download loads of random stuff to it. I don't like that idea of downloading random addons (and I don't think I've downloaded very much to this machine for example that can actually run)...
My computer shuts off if an "untrusted" program uses more than a certain amoount of memory, data or cpu power (only things that are trusted are things like bitcoin core, litecoin core and electrum - my laptop dies if I stay on the forum for too long because it fills up the ram beyond the trusted limit (not just because I don't forget to plug it in Grin))...

Is it safe to assume, once I've sent an amount of coins there and none of them leave and my seeds have been taken completely offline and just stored in a notebook somewhere that my coins are safe for any new coins - I'd use my phone but that seems to have a limit of 5 keys?

If your seed has been generated properly (i.e. trough trustworthy (verified) wallet or through good RNG) offline AND the computer which has the seed stored in a text-file does NEVER touch the internet, it is pretty safe to assume that it is secured.
Without being able to connect to the internet, a potential malware couldn't connect to send the seed to the attacker.

But you should still use a non-digital backup of your seed. Your system/hard drive might break. Or a lightning strike could destroy your hardware.
It is always good to have a non-digital backup for such cases.
I'll just claim it back on the insurance from the lightning strike Grin.
Although my non-digital copy of the seed might be frazzled, ash or molten by this point too?
17  Economy / Speculation / Re: I expected a price flop with the recent news. on: September 19, 2018, 04:45:05 PM
Due to this: I was expecting a significant price drop. It doesn't matter that the vulnerability is a small one, it's the fact that it got missed by the core devs for so long and maybe smaller things could also get missed by them accidentally along the way that are more significant...

Anyone got any thoughs, was I being too pessamistic here? (by significant I mean 300-500$ the coin itself is quite stable)
I doubt that people(idiots) even know about it. People are more interested in dumping altcoins than bitcoin at the moment. Also, since this is more of a technical vulnerability, people won't even understand it.

Right now, I have given up on markets. They have got no hopes left,for now. I don't understand what the fuck is going on, cause everyone just claims different reasons,and none of them end up to be true.

I'll explain what's going on.
1. Bitcoin needs to drop in price before people think it's undervalued and start to buy it up.
2. The majority of Alta that are following ethereum and litecoin have to be devalued also (to fall to around 0.007 bitcoin to litecoin - it's actually just below that but I'll get accused of stuff if I give an accurate figure).

Full disclosure: I have less than 0.004 litecoin.
18  Other / Meta / Re: Do we need a place (page in this forum) to buy merits in bitcoin forum? on: September 19, 2018, 03:02:14 PM
Sure. Sell them for about 0.1BTC each and we'll watch theymos roll in the money that he gets... Grin

Then people are able to get the one merit they need and aren't going to spam bounties or advertise them if they risk getting negative trust and losing everything Smiley.
19  Other / Meta / Re: And thats how I got my FIRST ever Merit... on: September 19, 2018, 10:49:28 AM
Looks like we could be in for a nuking here.  This makes it seem also like the requirement of only getting 1 merit to become JR is possibly too low...
20  Other / Meta / Re: And thats how I got my FIRST ever Merit... on: September 19, 2018, 10:04:04 AM
Looking trough your post history man, I feel like I'm in Gyza.

It's not Egypt here, please stop the quoting pyramids, I don't even see how did you manage to get 1 merit.

Same, i am quite confused in here. I do really agree that anyone deserves a chance to get a merit and second chance to be a different person and stop being (at least less) bounty hunter, but is too fast for someone to give this OP a merit. Just my opinion.

Broken clock principle at its finest: "even a broken clock is right twice a day". In some 999 posts, it's probably expected one would stand out...whether it's deserved or not is a different story...

@OP, I'm a bounty hunter as well but I never quoted my previous reports. There are some bounty managers who hate posts like yours, it can slow down the loading of the page.
Yeah i agree with this since this is really annoying when you see more accounts in the bounty page quoting their report.

NO! Keep quoting loads of posts and making the jobs of the bounty managers as hard as possible. It's the only way they're going to learn that they're not welcome here and they should go elsewhere (it also gives the m an incentive to automate the system rather that flooding this forum with links).

Exactly! There are bounty managers already doing bounty campaign program automation and i know quite few of them. Sad to say that there are many bounty managers here that until now still learning on the process of doing that or even not at all. I suggest to conduct a lesson for those bounty managers to simplify their job.

"Build it and they will come" doesn't seem to work so well...
You either build so,etching and make it pay them or have to force them to do a test in order to do it (I suggest the test) with the bounty being deleted if the manager doesn't take the test.
